These bamboo panels are created by first immersing bamboo stems in a paint bath. The paint sticks mainly to the inside. After washing and drying, the stems are sliced in two, making the colour inside visible. The split stem is kept natural to accentuate the shape of the colored spaces. Added together, the split stems create an organic line pattern with the recognisable image of bamboo. The inside of bamboo is covered with a thin film, which is sometimes used for flutes (recorders). After the painting process, this thin film is also stained, but it can be easily removed and used in textile as decoration. Because all films are different, every square meter is unique. The panel dimensions are 30 x 60 cm (120 cm upon request).
